Help Me Pick My Beaters Paint Scheme!

ok, as you may know i have a 500 dollar beater(which at the moment has a broken axle i gotta fix) and while i'm fixing that, i'm going to paint it. the way i want it painted is like this car from none other than FAST AND THE FURIOUS TOKYOZ DR1FT



now , just so you know, i'm doing this myself, and i'm going to rice out the car. spoiler and all. therefore, i'm using the 1$ paint cans from dollar general(yes, they have them) car is already pretty much primered. its just white primer , i think. lol. who cares. no clearcoat(yet) no sanding, anything. just pure bubbly painty goodness. this shouldnt cost me more than 15 bucks.

heres what it looks like "stock"

EVERYONE BOW DOWN TO MY MAD PHOTOSHOP SKILLS
ok, now its either white/black scheme


OR
red/black scheme

I dunno dude, I like the white and black.

How's this, paint the hood black and leave the rest white; roll on steelies, cause apparently that what Civics are supposed to do. Erector set spoiler for the same reason. The spoiler and 2-tone are for your T0ky0 Dr1ft, and the black hood is an ode to Initial-D, especially fitting since its a FWD car. Get as many stereotypes in at once as you possibly can!

HELL NO, drive that biatch until the wheels fall off, while you're modding your other car and specializing in drag or autoX. Cars are so much better if you specialize.

Beater- who cares what it looks like, so long as it doesn't cost much, I did a Dodge Daytona custom spray paint job on a 79 Datsun pickup once. Spray paint is not waxable . Keep the stereo hidden in the glove whether you have tint or not, and never tell your friends what you have in it if you're into stereo systems. Most of the time, it was my "friends" who stole from me.

lol, this beater is a serious beater. no speakers, no stereo, gutted interior. LOUD exhaust, i bought a 3 dollar boom box from the dollar store to listen to when i drive. why would i want to get rid of it? i have my cobalt i'm gonna fix up, and this thing pays for itself. adding it to my insurance made my insurance GO DOWN 50 bucks a month!!!

Well, it would be way easier to go with white/black if it's already white. Also, I had a friend who painted his truck bright orange. He took his time with primer and all that, and the paint still chipped off (big time) all along the bottom on the sides. So if you just painted the black "stripe" you could save youself from having the same thing happen to you.


heh, I love the ghetto mods on the beater cars. Here's my first car with the spoiler my and my buddy hand made with a sledge hammer and a big chunk of tin...

do the white black cause the paint will chip off the sides if you paint the whole thing without sanding and whatnot. yah and don't wax spray paint. my neighbor did that and turned his blue car white :D lol...but anyways def the white black. looks good.
